Internship at UNDP TANZANIA

Internship – Communication and Knowledge Management for MicroLead, UNCDF

UNCDF is the UN’s capital investment agency for the world’s 49 least developed countries. It creates new opportunities for poor people and their communities by increasing access to microfinance and investment capital. UNCDF focuses on Africa and the poorest countries of Asia, with a special commitment to countries emerging from conflict or crisis. It provides seed capital – grants and loans – and technical support to help financial service providers reach more poor households and small businesses, and local governments finance the capital investments that will improve poor peoples’ lives. Financial inclusion means universal access, at a reasonable cost, to a wide range of financial services, provided by a variety of sound and sustainable institutions. The range of financial services includes savings, short and long-term credit, leasing and factoring, mortgages, insurance, pensions, payments, local money transfers and international remittances. ( )

In September 2011, UNCDF and The MasterCard Foundation launched the expansion of the successful MicroLead (MLE) programme with the goal to increase access to microfinance, particularly savings services, to a minimum of 450,000 low income people in Sub-Saharan Africa. MLE supports leading Financial Service Providers (FSPs) and/or Technical Service Providers (TSPs) with savings-led methodologies to expand their operations/services to new, underserved markets. MLE has implementing partners operating in Rwanda, Malawi, Cameroon, Liberia, Tanzania, Burundi, Ghana, Uganda, Burkina Faso, Benin and Myanmar. With a view to strengthening knowledge around the development of savings products in financial institutions in developing countries, the MLE incorporates a strong learning agenda to encourage the sharing of best practices and knowledge within the microfinance community and beyond.

Among the different outputs under its knowledge management activities, MLE promotes knowledge sharing and learning for and with the partners of the programme. As part of this commitment, MLE has created a learning platform composed of knowledge sharing events and tools during the course of its programme. In addition, MLE organizes yearly learning events for its partners, the fourth (and final) to be held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, from March 6-10 2017. Partners are invited to participate in the workshops to share learning with their peers, funders and other experts.

The Objectives Of These MicroLead Annual Events Are To
  • Increase sharing of knowledge and capacity among grantees;
  • Build a community of practice among grantees that will have the potential to last beyond the MLE programme, and;
  • Collect learning from grantees and disseminate these learning beyond the MLE grantees.
